I have never built a computer before, however it seems like it may be the right thing to do at this point. I am a casual gamer and I want to play games like Diablo III, SWTOR, etc. My 5 year old laptop just doesn't cut it.
I am using the template from the sticky.

Additional Comments: Diablo III, SWTOR are the main games I want to look into now, maybe Skyrim. Because I am new I am also looking for build guides or good articles to read as a new builder. I am researching on my own but any help is appreciated.
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Laptop cannot handle games anymore
